The festival Holi, also known as Festival of Colours or Spring Festival, is one of the most exhilarating celebrations in India and Nepal, welcoming thousands of people every year. Mainly, it celebrates the beginning of the new season, spring. Originally, it was a festival that commemorated good harvests and the fertile land. Hindus believe it is a time of enjoying spring's abundant colors and saying farewell to winter. It also has a religious purpose, commemorating events present in Hindu mythology. During this event, participants hold a bonfire, throw colored powder at each other, and celebrate wildly.
This will be a great opportunity to celebrate the multiculturalism and cultural openness that shape Canada.
